This is pretty well documented, at least in the case of Europe '72 they sweetened a lot of vocals; perhaps not on the particular tracks you're referencing, but most of the songs on the first three sides have been doctored quite a bit.

It's cited in the wiki, but not sourced:

Right; from day one when it came out in the Bay Area as a kid, everyone talked about it, it was mentioned on the radio, etc., etc., etc.; so, it always seemed absolutely clear that it had been done on Eur 72 though I can't recall that I have read anything "official" (ie, from one of the band, or an insider...ANYONE else have some more significant to cite for a reference?).

But, this was NOT the case for S&R 71. I will admit we all thought the vocals were as good as it gets, but figured they were the examples that the boys picked to insure they had the best possible sound...

Sorta lays to rest the whole debate about live vs studio on the vocal department...
